Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Having starred in a number of operas and blockbuster films - all by the age of 18 - singer and actress Emmy Rossum emerged as a notable young talent capable of delivering quality performances on both the stage and the screen. Rossum's Hollywood career began by originating the role of Abigail Williams on the long-running daytime soap opera "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010) before making her film debut in "It Had to be You" (2000). Her breakthrough role came with the independently made drama "Songcatcher" (2000), which helped open the doors to a leading performance in the romantic comedy "Nola" (2003). She next portrayed the doomed daughter of a blue collar father in "Mystic River" (2003), before putting her lungs to the test as the young soprano Christine DaaƩ in director Joel Schumacher's much-hyped adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004). Following a supporting role in the underwhelming disaster movie remake "Poseidon" (2006) and her failed pop album, Inside Out (2007), Rossum returned to prominence with a well-received role as the overwhelmed daughter of a genial alcoholic in the critically lauded series "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011- ), which recalled the promise...

Notes

"My character is needy, sexy, and totally manipulated," says Rossum. "And, oh! I get to kiss Gerry Butler and Patrick Wilson!"---Rossum on playing the female lead in "Phantom of the Opera" Interview September 2003

"We were doing this scene in the morgue, and I'm lying on the table, my eyes closed, and the energy that was coming out of Sean was so powerful I started to cry. And Clint Eastwood says, 'Cut! Emmy, that was great, but you can't cry. You're dead.'"---Rossum on working with Sean Penn in "Mystic River Vanity Fair June 2004
